Thank you, God, that You are the light on our paths. That when all seems dark and foggy, that we can rest in the knowledge that You are light. And You are for us. Amen.
Over on our Facebook page, we've got a series of Friday affirmations. Some days we just need the reminder of who we are and who God is. We will be replicating that series over here. What's your fav...

Writing is lonely. Here are a few tips for finding #community  as you write. #amwriting  
Just this week I was talking to a good writing friend. She is successful. Her books are brilliant and award-winning. Yet she feels very alone in her journey. As I was chatting with her, I knew she was not alone. So many wr...

Looking for a new book? I just finished +Regina Jennings latest and liked it so much I'm #givingaway  one. Come on over and join the fun.
I loved how this story wove in a little mystery and a lot of God. I never felt preached at -- rather I felt encouraged and challenged. This book is perfect for romance lovers who love historicals that also strengthen their faith.

Wonder how to start your story? I've got a suggestion in this post. #YourStoryMatters  
When you're a writer, you quickly learn that the hardest part of writing is staring at a blank page or a blank screen. Sometimes you have to write terrible words just so the screen isn't so glaring...

Today I'm over at +TheGroveStory talking about the importance of community in learning and sharing our stories. #yourstorymatters  
Community is so much more. I have learned so many truths about my story as I have risked community. The Grove was one such risk. Each of these women are among my dearest friends and confidantes, bu...

Today I'm over at The Grove writing about how we find our stories. #storymatters   #Iamthestory  
It's when I'm quiet that I begin to hear the still small voice whispering in my ear. It's then that I can step back and ask Him why I do something. Why I respond in a way that doesn't make sense t...

Your story matters. God wants to use it to touch the world. #YourStoryMatters  
The vision behind The Grove is to create a place of community. One where each of us can share our stories. Learn from each other. Learn from God. You see apart from Him, there is no Grove.

Some  years I do One Word. This year has been a struggle to land on the right word. Do you have a word for 2016? #oneword   #1word2016  
As I start a new year, I'm wrestling with what does God want me to do, to learn, to be in this year. The message I'm getting is to accept His audacious love for me. That message is appearing from multiple places, persons, perspectives.
